An advertising agency employee in New Zealand walked into a work meeting with a clown for emotional support as he feared being fired. Sadly for the man, actually lost his job but he said the clown "lightened the mood" by making him balloon unicorn and poodle.  
Joshua Jack decided to hire a clown when his supervisors scheduled the meeting and he "thought it's either a promotion or worse".
"I thought it's best to bring in a professional and so I paid $200 and hired a clown," The Independent quoted Jack as speaking to Newshub NZ on a video call.
While the news of his termination was broken to Jack, Joe the clown was busy making him balloon animals and the meeting attendees "had to tell him to be quiet from time to time".
The New Zealand Herald obtained a photograph supposedly of Jack with his face blurred out and sitting in an office next to a clown. Joe the clown is reportedly mimed crying expressions after Jack was told by his bosses about his dismissal.
